St. James's Park was absolutely beautiful. It is great for a few reasons. 1) For the same reason all parks in London are lovely: year round greenery, 2) It is surrounded by the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace, 3) Many ceremonial parades and royal activities happen here.

|Royal Guard. I felt really bad for the horse - he didn't want to stand there. Note the sign.|
|Apparently the bird keeper of the park. My friend Amy and I walked up and this guy was feeding fish to the Pelicans. That's the Bird keeper's house built in the early 1800's.|
